Mythbuster

Apa sih mythbuster itu?

Salah satu judul reality show paling anyar yang kini tengah menjadi tontonan paling menarik di AS adalah MythBusters. Program prime time yang tayang di Discovery Channel menguak kenyataan di balik berbagai mitos, legenda, dan takhayul sains yang selama ini beredar di seputar kita.

Beberapa hal dikuak MythBusters selama penayangannya di antaranya adalah :
– seberapa besar kemungkinan secara ilmiah seseorang dapat menemukan jarum dalam tumpukan jerami?
– benarkah menggunakan handphone di areal SPBU bisa menyebabkan ledakan?
– benarkah menggunakan handphone di pesawat terbang mempengaruhi peralatan pesawat?
– benarkah sudah ada astronot di zaman Cina kuno?
– apakah manusia memang bisa terbang ke angkasa memakai kursi yang pada bagian belakangnya dipasangi roket?
– apakah menutupi granat yang akan meledak dengan tubuh bisa menyelamatkan orang di sekitarnya?
– bisakah manusia berjalan di atas air?
– bisakah menangkis samurai dengan tangan kosong tanpa terluka?
– benarkah ketika kita bersin dengan mata terbuka akan menyebabkanbola mata akan meloncat keluar dari rongganya?
– berapa lama kesempatan bagi manusia untuk bisa meloloskan diri dari sebuah mobil yang sedang tenggelam?
– benarkah suara manusia bisa memadamkan kobaran api?
– benarkah makan mentos secara bersamaan dengan cola bisa menyebabkan lambung meledak?
– benarkah manusia bisa melawan gravitasi dan dapat terbang dengan mudah?
– benarkah peluru yang ditembakkan di dalam air tidak akan melukai manusia?
– benarkah pikiran manusia bisa dikontrol oleh orang lain?
– bisakah sebuah ruangan bisa dicat menggunakan dinamit?
– apakah gigi manusia betul-betul cukup kuat untuk menahan laju peluru senjata api?

…… dan berbagai mitos-mitos lainnya yang beredar di masyarakat yang terlalu banyak untuk disebutkan satu persatu di thread ini.

Duet pemandu acara Adam Savage dan Jamie Hyneman mencoba membuktikan secara ilmiah semua mitos tersebut. Mereka mencari mana yang betul-betul terbukti dan mana yang ternyata cuma sekadar omong kosong belaka alias HOAX. Sejak tayang perdana 23 Januari 2003 lalu, MythBusters melesat menjadi programa andalan Discovery Channel yang meraup angka rating tertinggi. Dan saat ini, Mythbuster telah memasuki musim tayang yang ke-6 dengan jumlah pemirsa yang terus meningkat.
